So many thoughts and questions going through my head at the moment, I think I’ll put some of them down for my own sake.

Economy:
It will be interesting to see how all those people in rural America who voted for Trump hoping that their lot in life would improve with higher wages, less competition for jobs, resurgent factories in dying industries etcetera, will feel in the coming years when they realize that economically speaking nothing for them changed the way they thought it would. As these people come to the harsh realization that isolationism reduces economic activity who will they blame next?

What happens when his supporters realize that a New York billionaire not only doesn’t care about Joe and Sally Farmer in Bumfuck Nowhere, but it is Big Business and the 0.1% that are really reaping all the rewards from his presidency? As the income inequality gap widens and minimum wages are kept pat by a Republican administration in concert with a Republican Senate and House of Representatives, who will they lash out at next?

Social Issues:
What happens when the “little woman” won’t go back to the kitchen barefoot and pregnant?
Or who will pick their crops when the migrant farmers have left their State if not the country?
When the LGBT business owner closes down their shop and moves to the Big City leaving unemployed workers in their wake and unmet needs?
What happens when their wife’s life is in danger because of a pregnancy complication and all the Planned Parenthood clinics within 300 miles have been closed?
When they no longer can get health insurance because of pre-existing conditions?
What implications will less investment in education especially science, and the environment will mean to competitiveness in the world and well-being for all?
When unmasked bigotry, racism and sexism is amped up?
When the use of violence is a more acceptable form of discourse?

International Issues:
What happens when they see that the rest of the world is not easily bullied into positions detrimental to their own national interests?
When your actions turn allies into reluctant allies or even foes?
When a hard-line approach is met with an even harder line?

I suspect I, or should I say we will find out soon enough.

YES! Ignorant people want simple solutions and they voted a simpleton into office. They voted for a bully. He does not care about the middle class. He doesn't give a shit. Hopefully it won't take more than a year for them to realize this but, god, stupidity is amazingly resilient.

It's so frustrating living in this divided country and it's going to get worse.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I'm starting to feel a little uncomfortable with the talk of Americans being all stupid, some are but by no means all, every society has its morons please guys don't forget your American friends on here have feelings and the majority here are not stupid and didn't vote for the idiocy that is trump and some are struggling to come to terms with events lets have humour definitely but also compassion for our fellow atheists.

Greed.

Examples:
Insurance costs more because (in their mind) more people are allowed to have it. So fuck them because I want my insurance to cost less.

Immigrants are taking all of the good jobs, so get rid of them so I can get one.

Immigrants are draining the money we have through social assistance, so getting rid of them (somehow) will make the money go in my pocket (somehow).

Muslims want to implement sharia law, so we need christian law.



I hate people today. Today, rocks are several orders of magnitude better than people.

Being nice is something stupid people do to hedge their bets

Britain - "Brexit was the stupidest most destructive thing a country could possibly do."

America - "Hold my drink"

I feel great respect and compassion for those who did NOT vote for trump as I would have felt the same respect for those who rejected Hitler and Mussolini. For those who voted for this demagogue, the leader of the KKK being one of them, I have zero respect.

It's human nature to lump people into groups for the sake of creating the illusion of simplicity. They do it even as they criticize us for doing it. Just give them a polite thumbs up and go about your business as usual Big Grin

When 9 million citizens are thrown off the roles in Medicaid leaving the States to fend for themselves? Governors ain't gonna be happy. Kentucky teabagger governor Matt Bevin has already realized this in a "come to jesus" moment when he realized the unanticipated consequences of his promise to throw out the ACA.

Republicans don't have a very good history of anticipating the consequences of their actions. In fact they have a very bad history of it. This election was no exception.
